Remember Kaypro?

Esquire.  How We Lived 1933-1983.  June 1983.
Founded in 1952 by Andrew Kay, the inventor of the digital voltmeter.  The company and its products were huge in the 1980's, but were bankrupt by 1992.  There's a lesson here.

At the time of its release in 1982, the Kaypro II buried its competition, the Osborne I (remember that?)  With a huge 9" monitor and single sided floppy drives, a bargain at $1795 including software!  A real "down-to-earth price."
